We visited recently on a Friday night for tapas (there was a large group so we had the Chefs Selection), drinks and dancing. I really like the atmosphere of this place, it's relaxed and interesting. The food was very tasty as were the jugs of sangria. It was busy without being packed so we could sit down and chat without... More

Came here with a group of friends from work for late-night drinks but have been a regular in the past for after-dinner drinks on a Friday. Great tapas options, social atmosphere and a good selection of drinks. Occasionally some interesting entertainment (I just prefer to avoid the snake charmer types). Only negative is that cocktails in particular, and drinks in... More

Called in here mainly because Udaberri was too packed and we couldn't get into our other choice (Peel St) because I hadn't thought to book. Seen this place but not thought about coming here. Oh yummmm. Wish I'd been genre before. As usual, I go completely overboard and order way too many dishes ($75 worth of dishes to be exact)... More

After the theatre (Miriam Margolyes - Neighbourhood Watch) ducked in here for a Corona & a slider each, yum, yum. Wished they cooked all day, we were really hungry but unfortunately they don't start their full menu until 6pm. Will definitely return for dinner in the near future.

Stumbled onto this fabulous place in Leigh St and was blown away by its wonderful ambience. Beautifully decorated in a Morroccan style with dim lighting, padded benches, camel chairs, large brass plate tables, wooden flooring, outdoor beer garden ..the more you looked, the more you realised how great a venue this is. Whether it's an intimate dinner in a cosy... More

Really great tapas, good music and a great shiraz. What else do you need. The staff was great. We were told we'd probably have to move early as we did not have a reservation, but they managed to let us have a great evening.

We stumbled across Casablabla while wandering the streets looking for somewhere to have lunch. We were hoping to find somewhere we could dine outside as it was such a beautiful day. Unfortunately we weren't able to sit outside as there were already other people dining that were smoking (we had a 9 month old baby with us so we definitely... More

Love the atmosphere in a fun street - been a few times and never had any problem with service. if you are a visitor to Adelaide, easy to find and close to all the major hotels. Enjoyable tapas style food and good for after work drinks.
